Stephanie Izard

Some people do so many things well you can’t help but hate them. Then there is Stephanie Izard. The more the Top Chef alumna succeeds, the more we gush, and with reason: She cooks, she bakes, and her constant tweets make us feel like we know her. At Girl & the Goat, she makes even goat meat accessible and she showers odd vegetables—like kohlrabi, a sweet cousin to cabbage—with attention. What’s next: a book, a second restaurant—a Stephanie Izard channel? Bring it on. 809 W Randolph St (312-492-6262).

Other nominees Grant Achatz (Alinea), Dirk Flanigan (the Gage, Henri), Sandra Holl (Floriole Cafe & Bakery), B.K. Park (Arami)
